The “Glodok Affair” is a little known chapter in the events that occurred during World War II in the Dutch East Indies.
In mid-1944, a man named Piet Hein van den Eeckhout was released from the Japanese Civilian camp in Tjimahi because he vocalized his pro-Japanese feelings. A number of same-minded others were released with him. Their task was to seek out young men who would support the Japanese and the Indonesian cause for independence. This was accomplished by conducting a so-called loyalty poll amongst young Indo men aged 16-23. They thought that this would not be a difficult task, but they met with more resistance than they had counted on.    The Indo Project.
